Add a touch of timeless charm with Terracotta Pots. An Italian word that literally translates to ‘Baked Earth’, the distinctive warm orange hues of Terracotta will bring relaxing Mediterranean vibes to your garden.
Shop our range of Terracotta Pots at Diacos. These reddish-orange coloured clay pots are ancient and timeless. They remind us of the sunny frescoes of Italy, though you’ll find these classic garden ornaments dotted throughout modern and ancient cities all over the world.
So why have these clay pots stayed so popular after thousands of years? It’s because clay is a fantastic natural material for potting your plants. Terracotta is much more porous than ceramic or plastic, so using these pots will help to soak up any extra moisture in your soil.
It helps that these pots also blend in effortlessly with many popular garden styles. Terracotta will look good both indoors and out, and the warm orange hues seem to take on a soft glow in the afternoon sun. Try pairing them with Citrus Trees for an authentic European vibe.

Did you know?
This style of pot is considered a classic – and with good reason! Terracotta pots have certainly stood the test of time. Here are 3 of the reasons why this reddy-orange clay is just such a great material for garden pots:
It’s naturally porous. Because Terracotta is made of natural clay, it lets oxygen pass through freely and absorbs quite a lot of the water from your soil. This makes it a fantastic choice for plants that love dry conditions, like succulents or snake plants.
It’s a timeless look. Terracotta’s distinctive orange hue has made it a staple in 70’s-style vintage designs. But these pots have been trendy for longer than that! Terracotta pots have been used across many cultures for thousands of years.
It’s inexpensive and eco-friendly. Terracotta can add classic style to your garden without ever breaking the bank. This natural material is easy to manufacture and highly affordable. Best of all, it’s an environmentally sustainable choice.
